Easy Recipe

Serves 4 to 6

  • 2 pounds Certified Piedmontese 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ½ cup grated grana Padano or Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • Canola oil or olive oil, as needed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can tomato puree
  • 2 baguettes cut into thirds, or 6 sub sandwich buns
  • 8 slices Provolone cheese

Preheat the oven to 425°. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, salt and pepper, cheese, herbs, chili flakes, eggs, and bread crumbs. Mix gently to combine. Portion into 1-ounce meatballs. Add some oil to a large pan over medium heat. Sear the meatballs on all sides. When the meatballs are almost done searing, add the bell pepper and garlic and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato puree and bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each bun with provolone and toast lightly. Add the meatballs and serve.
